The objective of the MAIR Molecular Airborne Intercept Radar Program is the development of an X-band solid-state transmitreceive module for a future Navy phased array fire-control radar system. The basic system philosophy is dependent upon the development of an active aperture assuming certain anticipated air-to-air modes and threat environments. It was desired to demonstrate an X-band solid-state transmitreceive module, fabricate and test 20 radiating elements with the RF circuitry, and test these elements in a linear array to verify sidelobe level performance. The success in meeting these objectives is summarized in the report.
